President’s Corner

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature… After a year of no club meetings, we were on track to have our first in person club meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. Well, like I said, it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature. We had a real cold snap and some rain earlier in the day so we had to postpone the in person meeting until our May monthly meeting. Mark your calendar for our in person meeting on May 18th at 7:00 PM. As before, we’ll have the TARC Comm trailer available at 6:00 PM for tours. The TARC […]

President’s Corner

Can you believe it?   After a year of no club meetings, we’re on track to have our first in per-son club meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. A short survey done during the March 16th weekly net showed that the majority of us are ready for an in person meeting. The location is still to be determined. Keep checking the Tulsa Amateur Radio Club Facebook for the details. The Tulsa Amateur Radio Club Weekly Net is going strong and thanks to some really good presentations by Ron KB5VDB, Mark KG5ZZV and Bart N5TWB a lot of hams are checking in […]

4.20 TARC Meeting

We are working to see if we can secure a meeting spot IN PERSON for the month of April… More news to follow keep checking online and on facebook for more information!


It’s unfortunate that I have to report that the new TARC trailer was broken into recently and a number of items were stolen. Included were the two ICOM 7300’s. The serial numbers are 020333054 and 02033463. Also stolen were 3 heavy duty 50′ power cords, coax and wire used for antennas, some tools and other small items. If you are a Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist watcher or you attend any flea markets or ham tailgates, please keep an eye out for these radios. Thanks. Mark WA5MA


From Mark, KG5ZZV Mark gave a quick overview on first aid and had the below items to share with everyone. I’m planning to start my pretty brief presentation with a reference (sad this is necessary) to the Oklahoma Good Samaritans Act.  I’m sure the ARES folks are well aware of this, but anyone considering performing first aid should really be aware of this and pre-make the decision to help (or not). https://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=72826 What you should carry in your first aid kit varies widely by the areas that you might visit, but bleeding control, airway management and CPR are specific skills […]
